Indiana Man Who Shot and Killed Daughter Won’t Serve Jail Time

An Indiana man shot and killed his 9-year-old daughter back in 2017, and now, five years later, he was sentenced to serve one year in a county community corrections program while living at home and then three and a half years of probation. Oliva Hummel was shot in the head when her father was showing her brothers a gun and teaching them gun safety. The gun went off when he pointed it at her and shot and she later died in a hospital.

While prosecutors originally sought an eight-and-a-half-year prison sentence the judge presiding over the case agreed with Mr. Hummel’s attorneys in the fact that a result like that would only further traumatize his sons, Olivia’s brothers.

Mr. Hummel did plead guilty to reckless homicide and said that he didn’t realize the gun was loaded when he shot it and pointed at Olivia.
